much better than president obama. even the most liberal people say governor romney well outshined the president. that really helped with the early voting. the ground game in the key states is pivotal. but mitt romney's moving in the right direction. they can't afford four more years of barack obama. >> shannon: something the president has had to talk a lot about and fielded a lot of questions about, of course, the deadly attack in benghazi. four americans left dead and a lot of unanswered questions at this point. the house has held one initial hearing on this. there are a number of investigations underway. what is your impression so far about what have you learned and not been able to learn? >> what's unfortunate, the white house has not been transparent. they promised it, but they have not been candid. yesterday, a local aquilliate in colorado asked the president, did they deny a request for help and the president couldn't answer that basic question. a lot more questions we have four dead americans and people injured. and it's just sad, we have to make sure that it never, never h
on the jersey shore as president barack obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured hurricane damage in some of the hard-hit areas there. a little bit unexpected today, given that chris christie gave the keynote address at the republican convention against the president last summer. none of that political animosity on display today. both men said that they talked about everything from restoring power to clean drinking and sewage water in the area. >> i discussed all those issues today with the president and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help get us those things while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. >> governor christie throughout process has been responsive, he's been aggressive, i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. >> and larry, i asked the folks on the romney campaign what they made of chris christie's political bear hug here of president ba

in katrina. and you heard governor christie, who is a republican with president obama working together, and that's how it's been from the president, to the governor, to the counties and the towns. one of the things that i did today was talk to fema about trying to get an office and staff person in various parts of the district today, and they're working on it, and with the money that comes to downs for recovery to rebuild board walks or municipal buildings, i think there is a 25% state and local match. so we ask that that be waived. many of the towns are small and can't afford that. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> when you're making those calls, someone is answering your call and you're getting responses -- >> i literally called the fema while i walked into the nbc building today and they called me back in ten minutes. >> i know you were personally evacuated, i know you're back without power, good luck to you, stay in touch. >> thank you. >> for reference, this is the sixth district in new jersey, do we have that map? there we go, it's marked in red there where, of course,
toll of 64 americans. new jersey governor chris christie today was with president obama at the site of today's landfall in atlantic city. they were on marine one together, the president's helicopter, touring some of the cities in ruin along the new jersey shorelines. both politicians, both leaders today going out of their way to emphasize that day three of this massive, multi-state, ongoing natural disaster is still no time for partisan politics. >> i want to thank the president. we spent an significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to be able to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. and going over to the shelter here, be table to meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern and the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. so the things we need to do is to make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible. to m
, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i did today, in fact, i was just on the phone before i came in here, was talk to fema about trying to get an office and a staff person in various parts of the district that i viewed today, and they're working on it. i also asked, with the money that comes to towns for recovery, like to rebuild their boardwalks or their municipal buildings if they've lost it or their streets, i think there's a 25% state and local match. so we've asked and i believe the governor asked today that that be waived. a lot of these towns are very small and they can't afford that 25% match. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> and when you're making those calls, somebody's answering your calls and you're getting responses? >> i literally called fema, when i walked into your -- into the nbc building here today, and within ten minutes, they called me back. >> congressman frank pallone, represents new jersey's sixth congressional district. i know
. meanwhile, president obama and governor romney canceled more campaign plans, essentially freezing the race in place with just seven days to go. could sandy reset the tone of the race in the final hours? or even delay the election? >>> and that broken construction crane, folks, it's still dangling, dangerously high above the streets of midtown manhattan. the latest on that and much more in minutes. we've got that live briefing from mayor michael bloomberg that comes up in this hour. good morning from washington. it's still one week until election day, believe it or not, tuesday, october 30th, 2012, this is the "daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. let's get right to what we know this hour. at least 18 people have been killed, early estimates, but the damage from sandy at somewhere between $10 billion and $20 billion, but that figure could rise as people assess in the daylight. nearly 8 million people waking up without power this morning. sandy made landfall as what's being called a post tropical cyclone on the southern coast of new jersey not too far from atlantic city at about 8:00 p.m., sustai
.c. public schools also will be closed. >>> president obama, local governors and other leaders are all asking all of us to stay home and stay safe through the rest of this storm. if you don't have what you need at home, chances are the stores don't have it either. >> pat collins has been out in montgomery county all day. he's up on i-270 in rockville. pat? >> reporter: jim, i've been to gas stations that don't have gas. i've been to radio shacks that don't have transistor radios. and flashlights, forget about flashlights. if you don't have it by now, this is no time to go out and get it. stay home. live without it. wait this storm out. now, we're on 270 near montrose road. the rain here is relentless. we get sudden gusts of win every now and again. the traffic is light. but getting through the roads, likely to become dangerous. let's hear now from some 270 road warriors. >> hard driving. win wind. >> reporter: hard to keep the control? >> yep. it's raining a lot. but it's not disrupting traffic at all. >> i can still see where i'm going at leas i'm glad i have traction control on my car. >> i
here in ohio. we expect to see president obama and governor romney hit these battle grounds hard over the next ten days. ohio is perhaps the most important of them, especially for governor romney. because no republican candidate has won the white house, alex, without winning this state. last night as you mentioned, he and paul ryan held a huge rally in north canton last night, about 8,000 people according to the campaign braved some pretty brisk temperatures. the governor is asking for their help in this state because the latest cnn poll just out a few days ago shows that the president is up four points. 50-46. now that lead is about half of what it was a few weeks ago. so the governor has chipped away at that lead but still has a ways to go. they want to get their graund game out, get people out to early vote and then get people out to the polls on november 6th. governor romney is going to campaign with florida senator marco rubio and paul ryan is going to hit this state hard over the next 48 hours. they really expect to win here. rob portman, who was governor romney's debate partner
if they're not. governor romney made a very strong case against barack obama, his failed policies and how it's done enormous amount of damage to americans across the country. so that's the case we're making, because the big decision is next week. and the governor understands the failed policies of barack obama, but he's been working with him on this storm and feels he's working very well with him. so be it. >> it is an image that will stick in some people's minds. i just want to ask you, "wall street journal" wrote a headline about the storm and underneath the headline about the storm, which is the top story around the country, is, race is back on after storm hiatus. as you can see, it did make the front page. look, i guess that's something. it is a presidential election. but has the hiatus slowed mitt romney's momentum? are you just hoping whatever people thought before the storm, they froze whatever they're going to do and still going to do it and not see any swing back to the president? >> there's no question we have five days left, the momentum is with us, but you stop campaigning, yo
. go to cymbalta.com to learn about a free trial offer. >>shepard: a day after governor romney returned to the campaign trail after super storm sandy president obama has started what the team calls closing arguments. the president is embarking on a marathon trip across several key battleground states started shaking hands with supporters in green bay and then to las vegas and then colorado and then stopping in columbus, ohio. governor romney, he is focusing on virginia which could be a toss up. john roberts is with us following the governor romney campaign and ed henry is covering the president's campaign, and the president will speak in an hour, is that right? >>reporter: that is right. he was in business earlier, flashing a new wardrobe wearing a bomber jacket from air force one and a new message, the aides say that while he has been negative on governor romney and days ahead,, he will be more talking about what he would do in a second term. take a listen. >> we made real progress the past four years. but wisconsin, we know our work is not done yet. as long as there is a single americ
: today, mr. obama was back in campaign mode, deriding governor romney's eromise to bring change to washington. >> another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy isn't change. >> no! >> turning medicare into a voucher is change, but we don't want that change. oveeporter: the president's iveedule over the next five days tells you a lot about his mpaiaign strategy. he'll be spending a great deal of time in ohio and wisconsin, trying to build a midwest firewall to prevent governor romney, scott, from getting 270 electoral votes. >> pelley: well, nancy, governor eymney went hunting for votes today in another swing state, virginia. snd jan crawford is covering his campaign. mp we really can't have four more years like the last four re ys. i know the-- the obama folks are chanting four more years, four fre years. rut our chant is this-- five more days. >> reporter: at a rally in virginia, a campaign cheer was also a reminder of how little time is left. >> five more days! ore more days! r reporter: before the y hadcane, romney had momentum. the race was in a dead heat, and he was
in virginia. with president obama back out on the campaign trail, governor romney went at him directly again today attacking him on something the president said earlier this week to grow the economy he could consider creating a department of business and appoints a secretary to head it. governor romney saw that as another example of the president wanting to grow government and put more bureaucrats in charge. >> he came up with an idea to create a department of business. i don't think another cabinet chair is going to create the jobs that america needs. i am entitled to make sure we have a president that understands business rather than trying to hire someone in the cabinet who has the background. >>reporter: governor romney has a nine-point advantage over president obama on who can best handle the economy and he is trying to work that on the campaign trail for all it is worth. >>shepard: what is the word on romney's closing argument? >>guest: this is interesting he has now fully co-opted president obama moves mantra of "change" not so were about hope because necessity say hope is not a strat
to melt away. >> reporter: both sides acknowledge the storm provided mr. obama with a valuable opportunity to show bipartisan leadership in the closing days of this race. republican new jersey governor and romney supporter chris christie repeatedly praised the president's performance and his compassion. >> you're going t it to be okay. everybody is safe. >> reporter: today, mr. obama was back in campaign mode, deriding governor romney's promise to bring change to washington. >> another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy isn't change. >> no! >> turning medicare into a voucher is change, but we don't want that change. >> reporter: the president's schedule over the next five days tells you a lot about his campaign strategy. he'll be spending a great deal of time in ohio and wisconsin, trying to build a midwest firewall to prevent governor romney, scott, from getting 270 electoral votes. >> pelley: well, nancy, governor romney went hunting for votes today in another swing state, virginia. and jan crawford is covering his campaign. >> we really can't have four more years like the last
of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first of all, we have the gallup daily tracking poll today that shows governor romney up by four points, 50-46. you have the rasmussen daily tracking poll that has governor romney up 50-47. the real clear politics average though is closer, that has 47.7 for governor and 46.8 for president obama, so, erin, real clear politics, you guys have this as a virtual dead heat? >> we do. in the national polls right now, it looks like mitt romney is ahead. he's poised to have a victory in the popular vote, if the election were held today. but if you look at the a lot of the state polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a vi
daily tracking presidential tracking poll shows that governor romney has 49%, president obama 47%. scott rasmussen joins us now by phone. scott, the main question at this point it looks like this romney momentum has stalled? >> well, the race has been pretty stable, you know, governor romney had a good move after his first debate performance, took the lead nationally, made a lot of gains in some swing states and the race hasn't changed too much. it's very close with a slight edge to governor romney nationally and it may all come down to two states, ohio and wisconsin. charles: and speaking of which, those polls, you know, listen, over the weekend. you've got a lot of competition, and some of them i haven't heard of before, but seem to be a zillion and one polls to give the information, how are you feeling about the two key swing states now? >> i think both are too close to call. if i had to guess i think wisconsin is a little better for the republicans and a little better for the democrats. when i ook at the polls that are out there, in ohio, the rate, the numbers range from very from e
the elections. nine days until voters go to the polls. >> we have seen some of the effect. both governor romney and president obama have canceled effe events in virginia. one big impact right now. it's going to expect their effort to get out the vote. early voting didn't have much effect on early voting in florida yesterday. it could complicate it in virginia and ohio. then finally, is this storm as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates. >> i wonder if you're the president how do you manage campaigning, because his job is truly on the line here with governing and imagine perhaps a large disaster. >> he's returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancelling some events. the biggest problem for the president right now, if he makes any mishandling of this storm could affect the final days of this race. >> in nonweather news, a bit of surprise, the des moines register, the largest newspaper endorsed romney. >> iowa is a key state. it's part of barack obama's mid western fire wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio.
it out there. governor romney made a strong case against barack obama and his failed policies and now it's done an enormous amount of damage to americans across the country. that's the case we're making because of the big decisions next week and governor christie is with mitt romney, understands the failed policies of barack obama but working with them on this storm and feels he's working very well with him. >> it is an image that sticks in some people's mines. "the wall street journal" wrote a headline about the storm and underneath the headline about the storm which is the top story around the country is "race is back on after storm hiatus." smaller font but it made the front page. that's something, but barely making the front page. has the hiatus slowed mitt romney's momentum? are you hoping whatever people thought before the storm they froze whatever they're going to do and still going to do it and not going to swing back to the president because of the storm? >> that will have to be seen. there's no question we have five days left that the momentum is with us, has been now for a lon
? do they credit john kasich, the republican governor, or do they credit barak obama, the democratic president? >> well, in the polls that i have seen, most recent polls by a big margin, they give the governor credit. and i think that's absolutely correct. he came in, very tough situation. he's dealt with the taxes, taking down regulations, created a better business climate in the state. i think people understand that. what we feel in ohio is people are just not particularly happy with president obama. i think this race really got reset in ohio after the first debate. the obama campaign had been painting this picture of governor romney as some individual and people looked at the stage and they said, look what governor romney was saying and they said, he could be president. he could be a leader. >> steve: sure. >> and i think it's made a big, big difference. >> steve: and governor, i know that you're happy that the unemployment rate is lower in the great state of ohio, and that is the number one reason people are going to be casting a ballot is the economy. but you give barak obama th
anymore. they have been washed away. others, flooded. president obama and new jersey's governor chris christie will tour the damage tomorrow. we learned that earlier today. what they will be seeing and what we'll be showing you tonight, it covers an awful lot of ground, a lot of cold, wet ground. here's jason carroll. >> reporter: a disaster still ongoing. the images, overwhelming. >> this was a devastating storm. >> reporter: a tanker onshore. >> it is beyond anything i thought i would ever see. >> reporter: miles of shoreline washed away. home after oceanfront home surrounded by water, yet consumed by fire. in west virginia, and across the appalachians, ice and snow. all of it, all of this, the legacy of sandy. a super storm that's living up to the name. as bad as the billing, as terrible as the forecast. >> look at these waves coming through behind me. >> reporter: new jersey caught some of the first of it and much of the worst. >> we're at a moment now where evacuation is no longer possible. we're no longer able to come and rescue people. >> reporter: those who stayed woke up to t
without power. the new jersey coastline, changed forever. this hour, governor christie and president obama touring that hard-hit area. >> the jersey shore is the soul of new jersey and we're going to rebuild, but it's going to take some time and some effort and some resilience but those are all things that new jerseyans have in abundance. >> much of new york city is still crippled, subways flooded, fires still smoldering. but the governor has just announced some progress. >> limited commuter rail service on metro north and the lir will begin 2:00 p.m. today. and limited new york city subway service, supplemented by a bus, which we can give you more details on from brooklyn to manhattan will begin tomorrow. >> the exchange back in business today. >> and mitt romney is back on the campaign trail, in florida. >> so i believe that this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform. and a president that brings us together. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. misery from sandy is coming along the northeast corridor wi
. the story continues. we're waiting for president obama and governor christie's arrival. that will be an interesting bipartisan moment here in atlantic city. >> that fire hydrant picture is stunning. scott cohn, you're in a part of manhattan that's described as two different cities right now. that couldn't be more true. >> reporter: good morning from wall street. we moved inland from battery park and if you were just dropped here from outer space and just looked around for a second, you might think that this is a regular day at the office. of course it's not. mayor michael bloomberg was here to ring the opening bell for trading. we asked him as he came out of the exchange about the symbolism of that opening bell. >> it's good for the city and good for the country and good for everybody to get back to work. >> reporter: as you can see, the workers are here. many of them got here before dawn to try to get things going. it is not easy to function in your daily life on wall street today. nothing is open. there's no power around here. more to the point, there are a lot of iss
. >> president obama met with new jersey governor chris christie yesterday. the president toured some of the worst hit areas of the jersey shore saying 2,000 fema personnel are on the ground in affected states. at least 76 people have died in the u.s. as a result of sandy, most of them from new york and new jersey. the number of people without power is dropping, though there are still 5.6 million customers that are in the dark and it could be ten days before the hardest hit areas see their power restored. more than 19,000 flights were canceled because of sandy but stranded passengers have something to be thankful for. newark and jfk airports were back in business and delta and american airlines are scheduled to resume a limited number of flights out of laguardia this morning. the airlines are waving change and cancellation fees due to the storm. the mta getting back up and running as well, subways offering limited service today. long island and metro north railroads will begin limited service, they began it yesterday and the mta are also waving all fares on rail, bus and subway rides
the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting
do you think president obama will be able to campaign? will he be able to campaign, and what do you think about governor romney? let's listen to the audio of david axelrod answering that question. >> i'm not going to tell governor romney what to do and, frankly, i don't think he is going to ask for my opinion either, but as far as the president goes, he has real responsibilities, and he, you know -- those responsibilities come first, and, you know, he is in constant contact with craig fugate, janet napolitano and all those with responsibility here and is going to monitor this. obviously, it's a very, very concerning situation. you know, in temz of the logistics, you know, we're obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time, but that's as it has to be, and we'll try and make it up on the back end. so for us it's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of responsibility, and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> and there you have david axelrod, chief strategist for president obama just a short time ago explaining how the obama campaign will spend their focus
clean, or your money back. . >>> hurricane sand chip has president obama and governor romney scrambling to rearrange their campaign plans with the election just eight days away now. both men altering their schedules and cancelling events. chuck todd is chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you. >> the calendar tell us there's eight days left before the election but there are not many campaign days. two campaign days and possibly three are gone. president obama woke up this morning in orlando thought he was going to do an event. they cancelled his appearance there. he's now back at the white house. he's already lopped off his entire tuesday schedule. mitt romney on the other hand is trying to find this balance. the fact of the matter is we know this is the october surprise, is this storm. the campaign has frozen in place as far as all the polls are concerned. the question now though who benefits from this race freezing? president obama tried to stay ahead of sandy arriving in orlando late sunday 12 hours ahead of schedule. mitt romney cancelled his weekend events in vir
that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor krit tee who has been such a supporter of romney and now barack obama. i mean he has been ee fusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way in praising president obama and then mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels. so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate change and endorsing his candidacy, i don't think there are a lot of swing voters waiting around to see where the mayor of new york comes down on the race but reinforces the concept of president obama as someone who is able to cross party lines and get things down and be forward looking in terms of his agenda
president obama. >> yesterday i was with governor kasich and congressman ryan on the clip you showed, there was a good energy there, i was with congressman ryan and governor romney in canton. we had 10,000 people in a high school ball field in canton and great energy there and i think that governor kasich is doing a great job campaigning with governor romney and i believe a good synergy, imagine what we can unleash in ohio if week get government bureaucrats out of the way. the obama camp says we helped to save the auto industry in ohio and a lot of the jobs saved in ohio are as a result of us, what do you say to that? >> again, i believe we're doing well in ohio despite the headwinds. and one of the reasons we're bucking trends, we have oil and gas, and in the marseles and the utica shale formations and governor kasich and the legislature are opening up lands for drilling which is essentially creating jobs throughout the state in some of the most depressed counties, despite regulations and despite headwinds from washington. >> clayton: right. you know, it's interesting as you look at
john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
, everyone. president obama, along with new jersey governor chris christie, will be touring parts of the jersey shore and devastation is immense and widespread. this morning we're in point pleasant beach, new jersey, this is an amazing scene. if you're familiar with this part of the jersey shore t looks nothing like it usually looks. take a look. you can see these traffic lights are all out. the force of the storm actually severed that one in half. what you see as you go through this area is mounds and mounds of sand. you can see mounds lining this street, that street is flooded. if we flip here a bit, this mound is about twice my height. what happened here during the storm was that sandy took the sand from the beach and just threw it inland here and now dozens of front end loaders have been gathering it up and pushing it to the side of the road so ultimately it can be shipped out of here. but governor christie says this will take a long time to get it where it needs to be but new jersey will come back. that's the latest from point pleasant beach, robert moses. back to you. >> eri
